Think about how much more advertising takes place on TikTok. The content also isn’t limited to second videos. People can advertise their stupid ass products on the platform and TikTok gets a share of that, TikTok also directly pays US creators so the incentive to create content is much higher.

Vine and Twitter were owned by the same company. Twitter was making money, Vine wasn’t. They decided to shut Vine down.

Tiktok has ads.
Tiktok also sells items that people can send in lives to your favourite creators.
I think tiktok also takes a % of tiktok live earnings too if I’m not mistaken.

I don’t think vine had any of that

Tik tok is subsidized by China. China understands the benefit of controlling a large social media platform, and tiki tok outside China operates at a loss. Til tok in China is also very different from tiki Tok outside China.

Alot of the top influencers on Vine were being paid by Vine to produce content. YouTube offered them more money for their content and they all left and once they left, their fans left as well

TikTok is a wing of the CCP propaganda machine.

Vine was an experiment in viral social media.

When Vine lost money, the board decided to pull out as protection of the investors’ capital.

No matter how much money TikTok loses, it is a valuable propaganda outlet and statistics measuring device for one of the richest governments in the world.

The relationship between TikTok and the CCP was controversial, until their parent company bytedance announced fake plans to build a server farm in Texas, and turn over all control of data gathered in the USA and access to their recommendation algorithm to Oracle.

We know this to be false because as soon as the law requiring bytedance to do that (not necessarily Oracle, but a USA based company) was passed, bytedance said they’d rather shut down USA operations than comply.

If this post seems overly wordy, it’s because the ELI5 bot is an electronic dick.

TikTok’s are not limited to 6 seconds. It’s a huge difference in what kind of content gets created on the app. Plus, it’s much easier to generate user content now. It’s second nature to a lot of people growing up.

One thing that hasn’t been mentioned is that TikTok has a very aggressive algorithm that is uniquely good at keeping you hooked.

Vine wasn’t built on teenagers doing sexual dances and wasn’t backed by the Chinese government
